25 June 2020 Weekly Bulletin / Boletín Semanal

Dear Brothers and Sisters of Sts Peter and Paul Parish:
There is so much to tell you that you may not get past the headlines, but please be sure to read the big print! In this strange season of crisis upon crisis, starting with Covid-19, let us keep one another in our prayers. You are in mine. Please let me know if you are experiencing any difficulty or if you know of anyone in need. In addition to the parish telephone number, my personal number is 860-281-2595.
God bless you and fill you with strength!

Sunday Masses Resume!

Our Church Doors Open the First Sunday of July

Last Friday, Bishop Cote announced that we will invite our faithful to attend Sunday Masses once more, starting the 14th Sunday of Ordinary Time, July 4,5. Mass will be celebrated with precautions in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Starting July 6th, our three parishes will return to their normal schedule of Sunday and weekday Masses as well as the Sacrament of Penance.
 

Guidelines for Attending Sunday Mass

What You Should Know

Those who are vulnerable, including the elderly and those with chronic diseases, ought to remain home. Those who are sick or symptomatic must stay home. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect, and live-streamed Masses will continue to be offered. At Sts. Peter and Paul Church, a maximum of 70 people can gather at each of our two Sunday Masses. Face masks are mandated. The parish will provide face masks for those who do not bring their own. Hand sanitizer will be available at the doors of the church. Maintain a 6 ft. radius of distance from all those who are not in the same household. For now, there will be no congregational singing nor choirs; no processions; no altar servers, or eucharistic ministers. There will be no passing of the collection basket. A large basket will be placed in the middle of the center aisle for your offerings. Communion will be distributed at the very end of the Mass. It is preferable to receive holy communion in the hand. Be sure to lower your face mask just before you receive communion. Everyone is encouraged to stay briefly after Mass to welcome the Lord into their souls in prayerful thanksgiving. People should make sure to leave little by little, maintaining social distance.

Mass of Ordination 

Reverend Michael Bovino

The Diocesan Communications Office will be live streaming the upcoming Mass of Ordination of Reverend Michael Bovino taking place on Saturday, June 27th at 10:30 am and the Holy Hour for Vocations that will take place the evening before, at 7:00 pm. The Livestream can be viewed at NorwichDiocese.org/Masses and on the Diocesan Facebook page

Monday, June 29: 

Feast of Saints Peter and Paul

6:30 p.m. Outdoor Mass

Weather permitting, Holy Mass in honor of our parish patron saints will be held on the parish grounds. Bring a lawn chair! 

Feat of Saints Peter and Paul

Also, on Saturday, July 4 at 9:00 a.m., St. Joseph’s will host outdoor Mass on Independence Day.

Food Items Needed

Due to the enormous impact of Covid-19, local aid stations are in need of resources to help those in need. Not everyone has received stimulus checks or unemployment compensation, and as time goes on, the need will grow. You can drop off at the entrance to church non-perishable food items and baby items (diapers and wipes) for St. Vincent de Paul Place and Catholic Charities. Monetary gifts clearly marked for local charity should be placed in the collection basket or mailed to the parish office. Thanks!

Support Our Parish: Sts. Peter & Paul!

In May of 2020, parish income totaled: $ 7,347.00
Please do your part to bring our parish back to financial health by sending in your weekly donation. The two mailing envelopes that come with this letter will help you contribute in the coming weeks. In July, a collection basket will be placed in the church aisle at Sunday Mass. Remember: no offertory basket will be passed from row to row. With the disruption that we will see, the very best way to make your contribution is through online contributions. Visit our parish cluster website to register quickly, easily, and securely.

Why We Need Holy Mass:

The Eucharist Makes the Church

During his Sunday Angelus on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, Pope Francis highlighted the mystical effect and the communal effect of the Eucharist. 
The mystical effect: Pope Francis explained that Jesus is present in the sacrament of the Eucharist “to be our nourishment, to be assimilated and to become in us that renewing force that gives energy and the desire to set out again after every pause or fall”. He added that this, however, requires “our assent, our willingness to let ourselves be transformed – our way of thinking and acting”. 
The communal effect: The communal effect is “the mutual communion of those who participate in the Eucharist, to the point of becoming one body together, in the same way, that one loaf is broken and distributed”, the Pope explained, “One cannot participate in the Eucharist without committing oneself to the mutual fraternity”. Pope Francis continued saying the Lord knows that “our human strength alone is not enough for this” because we are always threatened by the temptation to rivalry, envy, prejudice, division, “He left us the Sacrament of His real, tangible and permanent Presence, so that, remaining united to Him, we may always receive the gift of fraternal love”. 
The Pope then explained that “this dual fruit of the Eucharist: first, union with Christ and second, communion between those who are nourished by Him”, generates and continually renews the Christian community. "It is the Church that makes the Eucharist", he said, "but it is more fundamental that the Eucharist makes the Church, allowing her to be her mission, even before she accomplishes it”.

¡Comienzan las Misas Dominicales!

Puertas de la iglesia abren el primer domingo de julio

El viernes pasado, el obispo Cote anunció que invitaremos a nuestros fieles a asistir a las misas dominicales una vez más, comenzando el 14 domingo del tiempo ordinario, el 4 y 5 de julio. La misa se celebrará con precauciones para evitar la progresión del coronavirus. A partir del 6 de julio, nuestras tres parroquias volverán a su horario normal de misas dominicales y entre semana, así como al Sacramento de la Penitencia.
 

Guía para Asistir a la Misa Dominical

Lo Que Deben Saber

Los que son vulnerables, incluidos los ancianos y las personas con enfermedades crónicas, deben permanecer en sus hogares. Los que están enfermos o sintomáticos deben quedarse en casa. La dispensa de la obligación de asistir a la misa dominical sigue vigente y se seguirán ofreciendo misas en vivo. En la Iglesia de Santa María un máximo de 85 personas pueden reunirse en cada una de nuestras dos misas dominicales. Las mascarillas son obligatorias. La parroquia proporcionará máscaras para aquellos que no traigan. El desinfectante de manos estará disponible en las puertas de la iglesia. Mantenga un radio de 6 pies de distancia de todos aquellos que no están en el mismo hogar. Por ahora, no habrá canto congregacional ni coros; sin procesiones; sin monaguillos, ni ministros eucarísticos. No se pasará la canasta de recolección. Se colocará una canasta grande en el medio del pasillo central para sus ofrendas. La comunión se distribuirá al final de la misa. Es preferible recibir la sagrada comunión en la mano. Asegúrese de bajar su mascarilla justo antes de recibir la comunión. Invitamos a todos a quedarse brevemente después de la Misa para recibir al Señor en sus almas en oración de acción de gracias. La gente debe asegurarse de irse poco a poco, manteniendo la distancia social.
 

Misa de Ordenación

Reverendo Michael Bovino

La Oficina de Comunicaciones Diocesanas transmitirá en vivo la próxima Misa de Ordenación del Reverendo Michael Bovino el sábado 27 de junio a las 10:30 a.m. y la Hora Santa para las Vocaciones que tendrá lugar la noche anterior a las 7:00 p.m. La transmisión en vivo se puede ver en NorwichDiocese.org/Masses y en la página diocesana de Facebook.
 

Lunes 29 de Junio:
Fiesta de los santos Pedro y Pablo

6:30 pm. Misa al aire libre

Si el tiempo lo permite, la Santa Misa en honor de los santos patronos de la parroquia se llevará a cabo en los terrenos de la parroquia de los Santos Pedro y Pablo. ¡Trae una silla!
Además, el miércoles 24 de junio, Santa María ofrecerá un evento a las 6:30 p.m. Misa al aire libre en la Natividad de Juan el Bautista y el sábado 4 de julio a las 9:00 a.m., la iglesia de San José organizará una misa al aire libre el Día de la Independencia.
 

Artículos de Comida Necesarios

Debido al enorme impacto de COVID-19, las estaciones de ayuda locales necesitan recursos para ayudar a quienes lo necesitan. No todos han recibido cheques de estímulo o compensación por desempleo, y a medida que pasa el tiempo, la necesidad crecerá. Puede dejar en la entrada de la iglesia alimentos no perecederos y artículos para bebés (pañales y toallitas) para St. Vincent de Paul Place y Catholic Charities. Los obsequios monetarios claramente marcados para la caridad local deben colocarse en la canasta de recolección o enviarse por correo a la oficina parroquial. ¡Gracias!
 

Apoye Nuestra Parroquia: Santa María

En mayo de 2019, nuestra parroquia recaudó: $ 5,831.15
En mayo de 2020, el ingreso de la parroquia totalizó: $ 4,353.31
Haga su parte para que nuestra parroquia recupere la salud financiera enviando su donación semanal. Los dos sobres de correo ayudarán a contribuir en las próximas semanas. En julio, se colocará una canasta de recolección en el pasillo de la iglesia en la misa dominical. Recuerde: no se pasará una canasta ofertoria de fila en fila. Con la interrupción que veremos, la mejor manera de hacer su contribución es a través de contribuciones por internet. Visite nuestro sitio web del grupo parroquial para registrarse de forma rápida, fácil y segura.
 

Por qué Necesitamos la Santa Misa:

La Eucaristía Hace la Iglesia

Durante su domingo Ángelus sobre la solemnidad del cuerpo y la sangre de Cristo, el papa Francisco destacó el efecto místico y el efecto comunal de la Eucaristía.
El efecto místico: El Papa Francisco explicó que Jesús está presente en el sacramento de la Eucaristía "para ser nuestro alimento, ser asimilados y convertirse en nosotros esa fuerza renovadora que da energía y el deseo de volver a salir después de cada pausa o caída" . Añadió que esto, sin embargo, requiere "nuestro asentimiento, nuestra voluntad de dejarnos transformar, nuestra forma de pensar y actuar".
El efecto comunal: El efecto comunal es "la comunión mutua de quienes participan en la Eucaristía, hasta el punto de convertirse en un solo cuerpo, de la misma manera, que un pan se rompe y se distribuye", explicó el Papa, "No se puede participar en la Eucaristía sin comprometerse con la fraternidad mutua ”. El Papa Francisco continuó diciendo que el Señor sabe que "nuestra fuerza humana por sí sola no es suficiente para esto" porque siempre estamos amenazados por la tentación de rivalidad, envidia, prejuicio, división, "Nos dejó el sacramento de su presencia real, tangible y permanente. , para que, unidos a Él, siempre podamos recibir el don del amor fraterno ”.
